What is Food Waste Recycling?

Restaurants, grocery stores, and other food-service establishments produce a large amount of food packaging material, much of which is thrown away. While it may not be possible to eliminate all food waste, reuse or recycling measures can redirect it from landfills, reducing harmful emissions significantly. 

Over a third of the food produced throughout the world is thrown away or wasted. Waste-to-energy systems, which use food waste to generate electricity, have a vast untapped potential for energy generation (WTE). Recycling food aims to resolve this. The food waste is converted to energy and other bio resources through methods such as anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion is a process in which microbes decompose organic matter in food waste to produce methane, which can be utilized to generate energy, transportation fuel, and heat.

Waste to Energy Through Food Recycling

Biologically generated gas is a renewable and sustainable energy resource produced by decomposing organic matter such as leftover fruit and vegetable wastes, leftover wood, and waste forest debris. Scientists have developed a new method of extracting all the energy locked in organic food waste while leaving very little waste in landfills or the oceans. In this process, waste is burned to create a crude liquid that can be converted to biofuel.After that, the residue undergoes processing to produce methane, which is used to generate energy and heat.

The growing concern about global warming and resource conservation associated with food waste has persuaded both public and private organizations to take corrective measures to process waste in an environmentally friendly manner over the last few decades. We are here to help. Help us help you by calling us on 01513 211 420. We can help you effectively recycle food waste, diverting organic matter from landfills and lowering greenhouse gasses emissions as a result.

The Food Waste Pyramid

Many factors contribute to food waste. In more developed countries, for example, food is wasted heavily both by consumers and retailers due to a lack of knowledge about expiration dates and businesses’ beliefs that consumers want only perfectly-looking food. Almost 90% of the food produced on farms as well as before reaching the consumer is wasted due to inefficiencies in transportation and preservation. While some solutions are more long-term than others, addressing this enormous challenge will almost certainly require more than one solution and a global effort.

There are various ways to reduce food waste, and the Food Waste Pyramid is a demonstration of this. Reduction would be at the top of the inverted pyramid since it is the most environmentally friendly option, whereas landfill would be at the bottom since it is the least eco-friendly. Following reduction is the recycling of food waste.

Food waste at landfills adds to the emission of gases like methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) and has the potential to damage the soil and water in the surrounding area. This is the least long-term alternative and should be avoided at all costs. At Liverpool Waste, we aim to send zero food waste to landfills because we strongly believe in the sustainability of natural resources.
